Many thanks to Kay Fulmer for hosting our recent luncheon at P. F. Chang Chinese Restaurant - Mall of  GA.  Attending were Kay Fulmer,  Sue Moore , Frances and George Bowen and Bettye Chambers. Everyone seemed to really enjoy our  lively conversations and the exceptional Chinese food. So nice to see that George Bowen was looking and feeling so much better.  He attributes this to the many prayer lists with his name highlighted. 

We still need hostesses for April, June, July, Sept., Oct., Nov. 2013 luncheons.  Please let me know as soon as possible if you will be able to handle any one of these dates. (If any of you signed up at the January 2013 luncheon, please tell me again since I am losing everything including my mind  ;- )

Have you been following the DeKalb County School board debacle?  Don't know about you, but every day I thank God that I am not still there.  Education has changed so much since I started teaching in 1955.

What say you?  Do you think the Governor did the right thing with the DeKalb School Board?  Below are some of the many articles which have been published recently which I included in my website, www.VoteRightGA.org
